  • Percutaneous biopsy or FNAB can contribute to the diagnosis in selected infectious cases
  • Image guided drainage of thoracic infections and fluid collections is the first election if conservative treatment fails and a good alternative of surgical treatment
  • Radiologists should know the indications, technique and complications of the procedures
  • Ultrasound and CT should be used for guidance

            – CT: fluid collections not visible by US
